If you saw the Singapore Airlines jet in the video above over head, you'd probably just think it was a low-flying plane. But you'd be wrong: it's actually a massive, epically realistic RC plane.

The video was posted to YouTube last month and depicts a flight from a replica Airbus A380-800. If you just want to see the plane take off, skip to about 2:15, though I recommend watching the first few seconds of the video as well; it proves that, yes, the plane really is just a model.

The video was posted by RCHeliJet, who also is on Twitter.
